Tostadas, these crisp fried corn discs topped with meat or seafood are a Mexican street food staple and one of my favorite quick dishes I love to make. Spicy Chipotle Shrimp & Corn Tostada is one of the best tostadas I have ever had!
I know. Bold statement. After biting into these layers: crunchy, creamy and juicy, you will understand why.
The creaminess of the avocado is perfectly balanced by the crunch of the fried corn tortilla and the whole dish explodes with the spicy and juicy shrimp (prawn) and corn mixture. An explosion of flavors, that just makes you craving one more. And another one..till there is nothing left.
Frying corn tortillas enhances the corn flavor and creates the perfect, crispy base for the creamy adobo guacamole recipe. I know baked is better, but not when we are talking tostadas 🙂 Using adobo sauce in this vibrant guacamole adds a subtle smoky flavor that just takes your regular guacamole recipe to a new level. Especially if you love spicy food 🙂
You can assemble these spicy chipotle shrimp & corn tostadas before serving or let your guests help themselves by spreading the avocado on a crispy fried corn tortilla and topping with some chipotle shrimp and corn mixture, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, a drizzle of adobo sauce and it’s done!
